Divino Niño Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a variety of clothing items and various flavors of ice cream to sell.

Divino Niño Group's story

The Divino Niño committee consists of 19 members, all merchants in the second cycle. They work every day to improve themselves and improve their quality of life.

Faustina is a person who worked in a Supermarket. She went back and forth to her job on her motorcycle, when she suffered an accident on her motorcycle. She stayed in bed for several months without working. At that time the loan she withdrew from the group was invested in the purchase of clothing, and she took advantage of her social networks to be able to sell. Her initiative went very well, so then she began to sell other items such as ice cream and that sells very well too. Today she is recovered but selling from her home. She stopped renting the house and moved into her house. She is happy and feeling renewed in her new home.

She asks for this loan to buy a variety of clothing and ice cream in order to be able to continue with her sales and meet her customer's needs, and continue improving for her family.

Note: Only one person appears in the photo, but this loan is for a group. The group photo was not possible with avoiding the gathering people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
